My raspberry group here in Singapore is a lot bigger then my openSUSE

OpenSUSE on my raspberries... :/
What really frustrates me
Feel free to join in and help get it all working if it frustrates you
As we've explained several times, the Pi uses the old ARMv6 architecture
and is almost the sole user nowadays (from a general compute
perspective). openSUSE is looking forward, and when we re-started the
ARM porting effort we made it crystal clear that our focus is on ARMv7
and above (including ARMv8).
Creating and maintaining a port takes a heck of a lot of work, so there
is only so much we can do. This does not stop you from getting ARMv6 up
and running etc, and we know there are a lot of people with devices.
This is what Berhhard help start and I know he would love some help.

IIRC you need to wait a little bit longer as the ARMv6 target hasn't
finished bootstarpping, I could be wrong and it is something more
fundamental that's broken.
